      I really wanted to like the DaVinci Code, mainly because I loved the book so much and read it multiple times. That said, I just couldn’t get into this movie. When I tried to watch the DVD, I ended up putting it in at least 4-5 times before I ever made my way

        Jean Reno is a real delight in the movie though, as the police office hunting down the duo. Ian McKellan is great too, as the friend with ulterior motives.
